Media & Press coverage:


Glammas Wrap is an artistic collaboration between Clara Hsu (poet), Colleen Quen (Couture), Greg Landau (Grammy-nominated music producer), and Wangyuxuan Xu (videographer). Performed by the Grant Avenue Follies, a cabaret troupe comprised of women ages 66 to 87, the "Wrap" celebrates the richness of their Chinese American experience through music, language, fashion, and dance.

We're still raising funds to cover the production costs.
